New! Booking form attachments

Today we launch something that we've been working on for a little while...booking attachments! 🎉 For example, if you're booking time off as a sick day, you can now attach a photo of your doctor's note.

This isn't limited to sick days - if you want to gloat about the weather forecast for your upcoming beach holiday, you could attach a screenshot of the local weather report  😎 

For this first release it's just a desktop function, but fear not, the mobile app will have the feature in the coming days.


More UI Improvements

📖 It’s a subtle change but we’ve replaced our fonts to Graphik. They're a little easier to read.

🖼️ We’ve also updated the UI to give even better iPad and small screen support in portrait mode. When in this orientation we now use a top menu, and it's easier to your Settings and Preferences.

January Improvements

Happy New Year! 🎉 Today we've kicked off 2022 in style with a number of small updates and improvements:

User management 👥

We’ve updated the user list to make it more obvious which users are being archived or deleted. We’ve also improved the archive and delete screens to be clearer about what impact archiving or deleting has on your users.

Email summary of absences 📩

We've changed the order that absences appear in your weekly summary emails, for those of you whose emails are truncated by hitting the maximum number of absences that can be displayed.  Previously they were ordered by start time descending, so  the latest dates appeared first. We've changed this to prioritise the absences coming up soonest, to make sure you don't miss any important information about your team's whereabouts. 😎

Public Holiday icons 🌹

We've improved icon prioritisation to make sure it's clear when a booking falls on a public holiday. Previously, the public holiday icon disappeared when a booking was pending on that day:

The bank holidays on the 27-28th do not have the icon when covered by a pending booking.

Now, the bank holiday icon always shows, even if there's a booking on it:



Reporting date change

Today we've updated the reporting with a small but significant change to the "End Time" field in the downloadable excel reports 👨‍💻

The end time for a full day booking will now be set to 1 minute before midnight i.e. 23:59 🕛

It used to be set to 00:00 - which is actually the next day, and we know it's been a bug bear for many of you.

So rather than this:

From now onwards it'll show up like this:

Hopefully that makes your formulas, reporting and pivot tables easier to manage 👌

New! Set your Business hours

You can now set your business hours in Timetastic.

And when you add new users they'll get those hours by default when they're created. 👍

It's all done in Settings > General: 


Modal closing annoyance fixed

Sometimes it's the little things...

If you ever clicked and dragged your mouse outside of one of our modal popups and released the button you'd have noticed it close without warning.  You'd lose all your changes to the user or HR fields you were working on and have to start again.

🙄 🤦

We fixed it - you can drag outside of a modal and not be punished now 😁

 


Faster wallchart & more secure.

Those of you with high refresh rate displays, large wallcharts or any combination of the two should notice the scrolling on the Wallchart is much smoother from today onwards. We've put in some optimisations that should make things fly 🏎️

Thanks to a disclosure from the community we've improved the security of our password reset mechanism 🔐

Welcome screen & fixes for October

New:

New companies signing up to Timetastic now get a nice welcome screen going through some of the basics and guiding you to setup help if needed.

We fixed editing your allowance from the preferences page.
